Framing & Decking Options

The same engineering expertise and product quality that characterize Wildeck's Custom Mezzanines are built into our Standard Mezzanines too. This assures you our Standard Mezzanine will give you added space at a moderate cost, with superior quality throughout.

High strength, zinc plated steel bolts combine with heavy duty steel angles to align the framing for uniform installation. These integrated components lock the connection into a solid unit for maximum strength.

Thousands of Wildeck mezzanines, both custom and standard, are being used today in warehouses, government and military facilities, industrial plants and retail stores.

  • Heavy duty columns provide strength and loading capacity required for industrial and commercial applications.
    • Completely fabricated steel components require no drilling, cutting or welding.
    • A selection of stairs and handrails are available to meet specified code.
    • (Optional) Installations are made by experienced mezzanine contractors. Each mezzanine is warranted for workmanship and material by Wildeck and mezzanine contractor.
    • To aid installation, component parts are piece marked with cross references to an installation manual complete with drawings.

Framing Options

Wildeck steel work platforms (mezzanines) can be designed for a wide range of applications from small light-duty platforms, to large-span heavy-duty industrial mezzanines.

Five structural framing system options are available to meet your specific load and application requirements. (If in a seismic zone, see our special moment connection framing).

Decking Options

Whatever the application, your Wildeck mezzanine deck can be tailored to your requirements – whether you need a moisture-resistant floor, open grating, or a heavy-duty surface that will withstand continuous traffic. Your Wildeck design team will recommend the most appropriate decking for your application.

Finish Options

Wildeck mezzanines are painted with a highly durable powder coat paint finish that provides increased protection when compared to other paint processes. Our state-of-the-art, automated paint line includes the addition of a new matte paint finish (now our standard). This high-performance matte finish has been proven to provide greater resistance to nicks or scratches incurred on job sites. Our legacy semi-gloss texture is still available as an option for both standard and non-standard colors. Wildeck powder paint contains zero VOC emissions and is landfill safe.

We were totally out of space, and without the mezzanine platforms, it would have forced us to add on to our buildings.
